Holy cow, I wrote a book!
And then we got an angry letter from
the company that wrote this browser extension.
They demanded that we remove the marking from their object
and let IE crash in flames every time the user wanted to surf the web.
Because they also wanted us to hook up Windows Error Reporting
to detect this crash and put up a dialog that says,
"A fix for the problem you experienced is available.
Click here for more information,"
and the "more information" was a redirect to the company's web site
(where you could upgrade to version x.y of Program ABC
for a special price of only $nnn!).
(Actually I forget whether the upgrade was free or not, but the
story is funnier if you had to pay for it.)
In other words,
they were crashing on purpose in order to drive upgrade revenue.
